Chuck Norris received the top votes this year by Liberty University students to be the 2008 commencement speaker. As you might imagine this drew quite a stir within the university. To be honest although Chuck Norris would not have been my first pick I was for the most part pleased with his speech. His charge was simple, to the point, and an always much needed reminder basing it off of Proverbs 19:21, trust God to direct your steps. Although he misquoted Proverbs 19:21 his heart was well-intended for this graduating class. You can’t tell much about his spiritual state based off this speech alone but he does seem to be a genuine brother in Christ and I admire him for his accomplishments. Below is his actual speech. In this he talks briefly about his spiritual pilgrimage, the dissatisfaction of his rise to fame, and his accomplishments.
In light of this past weekend I decided to post Chuck Norris’ Top Ten Facts. Chuck’s a good sport!
